Wodonga Raiders have worked overtime on tightening the defence for Saturday night's away clash against Lavington.
Raiders suffered the biggest loss of the Easter weekend as Wangaratta embarrassed the home team with a 96-point demolition.
"Generally speaking our defensive efforts (were poor) and our structure was lacking, they moved the ball too easily from one end to the other on numerous occasions and we spent a lot of petrol tickets chasing," big man Scott Meyer said.

"We want to work on our transition game, switching from offence to defence a bit quicker and putting in the hard yards, so defensively we are much better."
Raiders are still without their best player in three-time best and fairest Jydon Neagle, who still has one game to serve from a two-match ban while playing in the SANFL in 2019.
